After having the racing season kick off March 3-5 on the Streets of St. Petersburg, Christian Bogle is ready to get back into the driver’s seat of his #7 Pelican Energy backed HMD Motorsports car. Taking on Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama April 28-30, Bogle is looking to kick start his 2023 campaign after a top-ten result in Florida was ripped from his hands in the latter stages of the race.
Bogle’s experience on the Barber Motorsport Park circuit will provide him a slight advantage to battle the 20-driver-strong INDY NXT by Firestone competition. Competing on the track during both the 2021 and 2022 seasons, Bogle is ready to attack the Alabama Roller Coaster this coming weekend.
“Taking what I know about Barber from previous years and putting that knowledge to the test this year is extremely important to make it known that I am continuing to fight,” explained Bogle. “I have a great team and great crew in my corner. We showed that we could move forward in St. Pete but the key this weekend will be to qualify well and continue that progress throughout the weekend.”
During the break between St. Petersburg and Barber, Christian has been working hard with the team to prepare to get back on track. Taking part in the INDY NXT by Firestone open test at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on April 6, Bogle will now turn his focus to racing this weekend.
Bogle added, “Getting back in the car and on a track is the best form of practice but we always look forward to race weekends.”
The INDY NXT by Firestone brings the action all three days at Barber Motorsports Park starting Friday. With a pair of practice sessions kicking off the weekend, Saturday afternoon will feature a qualifying session that will set the grid for round two on Sunday.
